American Horror Story: Cult” (FX, 10 p.m.). From our review:

To say that many Americans have been living out their own personal horror story isn’t an overstatement — not with border closings, hate speech, and potential treason all enabled by the White House — but the new season manages to undermine the left’s legitimate fears and amplify the right’s monstrous traits all in one frenzied mess of an allegory.

Africa in Cannes

Films Without Borders is a non-profit which works with African youth from troubled backgrounds to make short films. Supported by Swarovski, in partnership with Nairobi City County Government, Fwb is building a hub in Nairobi within walking distance from the Kibera slums offering free filmmaking and post-production workshops and other film-related activities.

At the Shorts Film Corner, Kenyan Russel Bonguen and his short crime thriller,“Who Murdered Judge Dunia Kafir?” are making the rounds with his feature script. Russel is a graduate of Conservatoire Europeen decriture audiovisuelle, the best screenwriting school in Paris, but has returned to his home in Nairobi where he now lives. He has written “News Diva” a feature script with the potential of becoming a series or franchise. Imagine “Broadcast News” as “Chinatown” wherein the station’s lead anchor and Woman of the Year partners in crime with an ex-cia agent to smuggle blood diamonds from the Congo to Nairobi.

Nyff 2011. Ulrich Köhler's "Sleeping Sickness"

  • MUBI
"One of this year's very best films, and one that directly addresses Europe's fraught relationship with its colonial and post-colonial relationship with Africa, was notably absent from Tiff 2011," notes Michael Sicinski at Cargo. "Ulrich Köhler's Sleeping Sickness not only focuses on two socio-politically entangled physicians — a German 'gone native' and an Congolese-Frenchman with no direct ties to the continent — involved in an African aid mission. It deals quite directly with the multiple levels of corruption and bureaucratic failure built into European NGOs and their African governance, a system of mutual exploitation and double-dealing."

"In the first half," writes Elise Nakhnikian in the L, "a German doctor, Ebbo Velten (Pierre Bokma), and his wife (Jenny Shily) are preparing to leave Cameroon, where they were stationed for years while he worked for Doctors Without Borders. They're going back to Germany, but they've been in Africa so long they're not sure it will still feel like home.
